pulling that bus. Every day he arrives at the bus depot bright and early, ready to shift into high gear and run
like the wind to keep the bus moving forward. As one of those people with a real need for speed, Rufus loves
the momentum, the exhilaration of the wind on his face, and the thrill of passing every other bus on the road.
Yet, it isnâ€t so much that he wants to cross the finish line first or beat his own personal best. It is more
that Rufus longs to be part of something really special, something out of the ordinaryâ€”a bus that could fly,
perhaps. Oh, it may sound farfetched to you! But Rufus has plenty of ideas about how to make that happen,
and heâ€s well known on this bus for his passion. Rufus can make things happen, and he has a way to get
things done! Within every type of organization, it is the Runners, like Rufus, who provide the locomotion.
These individuals are working as hard as possible, and they essentially carry the load of the bus. They come
early or they stay late. They never complain, and they provide a positive spirit. Their work ethic is strong,
and their attention to detail is spot on. They are the strongest members of the team, and they are the driving
force behind the success of the organization. Runners are driven by the goal of professional excellence, and
they take pride in contributing to a movement or an entity that is top-notch. Their impetus to work hard is
often less about their personal accomplishments and more about the good of the organization as a whole.
They truly want to see system-wide success, rather than merely reaping individual accolades, raises,
promotions, or awards. Runners donâ€t let their egos keep them from tackling the task at hand. They just
have an attitude of It has to be done, letâ€s knock it out, letâ€s do it. I witness this at RCA all the time.
For example, recently we were preparing for a big eventâ€”a sneak peek of a beautiful new addition to our
school. The brand-new womenâ€s restroom in the newly constructed wing was on display and part of the
tour we were conducting; it was gorgeously decorated and sparkling clean, so we didnâ€t want it to be
used. But how were we going to make it clear to our guests that the restroom was for viewing only? The
easiest way was to make sure all the stalls were locked. One of our teachers, Wade King, said, â€œI got
you.â€• Heâ€s a phenomenal educator, heâ€s widely respected, he has been recognized as a District
Choice Teacher and Teacher of the Year during his careerâ€”and yet he dropped to the floor and was
crawling around under all the bathroom stalls to lock the stall doors from the inside. And he was happy to do
it! So Runners donâ€t make excuses, and they donâ€t feel above basic tasks. They just want things to
get done right. I spend a lot of time in meetings with corporate executives, including our board members and
the corporate sponsors who support RCA. Sometimes I sit back and watch, and I notice a certain way that
Runners act in meetingsâ€”how they make eye contact with the room, how they donâ€t talk over others.
There are some people who know how to lead a meeting so it keeps progressing, and then there are other
people who run over other peopleâ€s ideas and donâ€t add anything of value. Runners have a knack of
keeping the meetings moving without missing opportunities. They keep it going, keep it focused, and they
recognize the good ideas. And when a Runner is attending a meeting without leading it, he doesnâ€t get in
the way of the meetingâ€s forward momentum. In any organization, the Runners usually prove themselves
quickly, so they tend to move up in whatever hierarchy exists in that particular organization. In the corporate
world, a top performer is often asked to superviseâ€”and, hopefully, motivateâ€”others, as a first step up the
ladder. Itâ€s an added responsibility, an added chance to shine by helping others boost their own
performance. Big corporations tend to have a clearly defined progression with titles that range from
supervisor to department manager to director to vice president. And Runners tend to recognize what they
need to do
